Maine Speech: "God is not the President!"
This was speech I gave about a week ago in a small town outside of Augusta, Maine. I would of had it up sooner, but there is a bit of higher crime rate than I expected in Baltimore. but anyway here goes. There were about 75-100 people in attendence.
**-means applauding is taking place
"** Hello People! As you may or may not know I am Kurt Canning of the North American Athiest Party(**)...also the founder of the Centrist-Equality Party(XX)Hey now take it easy. Anyway I'm here to talk to you about something that troubles me and is troubling the country as we speak.
As you know, "God" and Jesus Christ have been an a large part of our government for far too long in my opinion. I don't think people realize how many freedoms they lose because of our religous rights goverment. Legal prostitution, medicinal drugs, same-sex marriage, and Abortion are all things we are without. Regardless of what you think. We will never have these things under our goverment, simply because.."god" said no. (XX)
That's Right I understand...frustrating isn't it? It frustates you that no matter what the majority of America wants..it depends on "God". No matter how much we demand and protest and vote..its up to "god". People will tell you the war in Iraq was over oil...they will tell you its over pride, honor, respect and many other things to blind the truth. This war was of "god's" will. This is a war on Islam not Terror. Though 68% of us said no, myself included, "God" said yes. So because of "god" Americans are dieing, Iraqis are dieing. Innocent people's lives are being taken, because..."god" said so. Don't you see whats happening here people? "god" is slowly but surely turning into the dictator of this country. An invisible man who lives in the sky..determines your life. Things that have nothing at all to do with religion and only affect you individually...are illegal, because "god" said so.
Now I don't Know about you, but I don't want an entity that we can not realisticly talk to, running our lives and determining whats wrong and right. (**)I don't want this same entity taking away rights of certain people, simply because he doesn't believe that their life style is appropriate, and finally....I dont wan't this same entity we call "god" destroying this beautiful thing we call democracy. (**) I say, if people want god to make their descisons and tell them whats wrong and right..then they can elect him president..but until god comes down and is democratically elected head of state...i'm not taking his word over the peoples!.
(**) (**) (**) (**)
Thank you! I'd like to thank all of you for joining me this evening,please drive home safe. Vote Canning/Young 2004!
